Default A few dull bird shots.

Had a chance to recently capture a few more shots of some of my favorite birds.

Sorry, but I did not do any PP on these shots, so you'll have to put up with the dull colors just as they came off the card dump from the E-520.

Wow, #2 & #4 have really varied colours, I've never seen Rainbow Lorikeets with such different plumage!

Thanks for looking. Lorikeets are not only colorful birds, but are quite active and funny to watch. Makes a nice challenge with the long telephoto because of the rapid movements of the subjects.

Thanks to all for the comments, glad everyone enjoyed them. Let me just add one more shot of one of the lorikeets eating while hiding in a tree. Notice how they look almost like plastic toys when compared to the dull green of the tree leaf.

I came here to see dull pictures. Where are they? These are beautiful birds, are they native to Australia? I know there are wild exotic birds in south Florida, and California. I wish we had some here
